    Who is DARKMAN? We attempt to answer that question in our latest commentary track, as we mark thirty years of Sam Raimi's campy-quirky-dark superhero tale starring Liam Neeson as the horribly-scarred hero with rage issue. Listen separately or watch along as we offer our nostalgic reflections of this tale, offer behind-the-scenes stories, and just generally get transported to a simpler time, when a cigar cutter was the most terrifying thing we'd ever seen.
